A Facilities Project for Vanderbilt Baseball
Investing in a culture, solidifying the future
Following a national championship win in 2014, a finish as the national runner-up in 2015 and years of building a family culture, Vanderbilt Baseball is positioned for extraordinary opportunity. Facilities enhancements will provide the leverage needed to continue competing at the top and to solidify this program for the future.
Philanthropic partners play a critical role in helping Vanderbilt Athletics reach new heights. While our Board of Trust has approved this capital project, we still need the support of our loyal Commodore alumni, parents, former players, fans and friends to ensure its success.
Project scope and details
The $12 million baseball facilities project will provide enhanced space in Memorial Gym for instruction, team building, coaching and settings that can foster interactions with returning professional players.
Improvements began in May 2016.
The project will include:
- the expansion of Memorial Gym to just beyond the left field wall.
- the relocation of batting cages to an existing below-ground level of Memorial Gym that will be retrofitted for that purpose.
- the renovation and expansion of the ground level and top floor of Memorial to house a state-of-the-art classroom, cardio room, expanded weight room, recruiting area as well as coaches’ and staff offices.
- the creation of a larger professional locker room to serve the many former Commodore players who return to train and mentor current players.
- an overhaul of the existing team clubhouse by renovating the team locker room, expanding the team lounge and reconfiguring the second floor as an open multipurpose space.
Estimated completion of the entire project is spring 2018.
